Molasses Ginger Biscuits/cookies


Lana noticed this recipe on one of the Cross stitch groups and gave it a go yesterday. We doubled the recipe and it made about 6 dozen or more biscuits/Cookies. Very tasty.

Wet Ingredients:
2/3 cup veg oil
1 cup sugar
1 egg (well beaten)
1/4 cup molasses (Treacle in Aust)

Sift together flour mixture
2 cups plain/all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda (Bicarb Soda in Aust)

Add flour mixture gradually to wet ingredients
Use a teaspoon per cookie/biscuit, roll into a ball and dip into sugar and place about an inch (2.5 cm) or so apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350F/180C for about 8 to 10 minutes.
Try 8 or so minutes for soft chewy cookies.....

The children had fun helping. Our official quality control officers took turns tasting each stage to see whether it was worthy to continue.
